As in the past, this will be a statewide competition, with stations competing against other stations in similarly sized markets. The portal opens on March 15 and will close on April 30. Submissions will once again be accepted online.
We will present awards in multiple categories for radio, television, and digital. We have a separate division for college radio and television stations. The competition will be statewide with stations competing in large, medium, and small markets. The competition will include content broadcast between March 1, 2022, and March 1, 2023.
This competition encourages professional performance and recognizes outstanding achievement among radio, television, and college stations in our state, and all employees of NYSBA member stations in good standing are urged to submit entries.
We will present the Excellence in Broadcasting awards at our regional luncheons in September. We are securing locations now. The lunches will run from 12 noon to 2 PM on the following dates:
